Riding through the Imperial Sand Dunes

I learned how to ride a quad, and chased jason through the dunes throughout the day. He is fast, and he scaled and leaped those monumental sand hills as though carried on a peregrin. I watched in awe, as i felt my own muscles aching with the thought of accomplishing those feats. We had our own trailer with shower, kitchen, and bed - so we made ourselves a pseudo home for a couple days. It was such a delight. Most memorable was our night ride, when we took the quad up into the sand dunes, under a blanket of stars. We saw shooting stars, satellites, and could point out the various planets and constellations. There is nothing quite like the night sky in the desert. *sigh* or the ravaging orange/purple glow of a desert sunset.... now, look at these photos and picture this landscape being an ocean bottom.
i am certain that once upon a time it was - i even found a random sea shell when photographing the sunset on our last night.  thought of accomplishing those feats.
